[SOHH highlights a hot record on Tuesdays and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After David Dallas decoded his Freddie Gibbs' assisted "My Mentality" last week, Hot Boys' Turk gives the inside on his "I'm Hot" anthem.]
I gotta give a shout-out to DJ Thoro. Him and someone else had sent me a beat and he was like, "This is a banger." The first one I received, it was one of those joints where when you first hear it you're like, "Okay, now what can I do with this?" I was working my brain because with me being from down South and this being an East Coast feel, I had to try and vibe to it.
I sat down and I did a little research and I went on YouTube. I saw that Mims, had "This is Why I'm Hot" and so I was inspired by that and with me being a Hot Boy, the chorus is saying 'Hot' so I'm hot. Everything I was talking about was hot.
I just started swagging to it and wrote the song. I wrote the song in about an hour. I went to the studio that same day and laid it. I knew we had a hit. It was one of those songs where when you heard it, you knew it was a hit. Instantly.
My nephew and nieces were all singing the song. Everybody's talking about they're hot. And the song isn't really big in rotation right now it's just there's a certain amount of people that heard it and once they have heard it, they know it's a hit.
I don't think too many people are telling me the wrong thing, so I know it's a hit. Shout-out to Mims, he kind of inspired me to go back into that Hot Boys sh*t. And me being a Hot Boy and me just coming home from prison being hot and smoking right now, that's what was the inspiration for me.
Young Turk is blazing up the internets with his new single "It's HOT" which has been posted on every hip hop blog worth checking! From sold out shows and a strong comeback campaign, Turk travels to NYC to shoot the first scenes of "It's HOT!" Turk really lives his lyrics, riding around in a very "hot" drop top, with a very "hot" girl in the very "hot" streets of NYC!
